My Home Necklace
A hand-carved large charm (1.5 inches) on an 18” goldfilled chain. The words “My home” on the back.
Inspired by a poem by Becca Lee.
“This is my home, you see, so no longer will I let it be a place of shame or a vessel of insecurity. It will be my chapel of forgiveness and a palace of respect.”
Having been a jeweler & designer for over 12 years, Melissa de la Fuente creates each piece from start to finish; with emphasis on beauty, longevity, wearability, and significance. She believes that jewelry is a personal form of self-expression and has heard from customers over and over about the personal victories, challenges, and moments that her jewelry has embodied for them. They hold them close, as intended, and take private strength and courage from the piece and what it signifies. Melissa works from her bright & happy studio in her home that she shares with her husband and best friend, her two beautiful daughters, and two sweet dogs. She hand carves or hand builds every piece and pays close attention to every little detail. Each piece is meant to last a lifetime and be passed down through the ages. Brass is her metal of choice for its beauty, strength, longevity, and humility. Her hope is that you find a piece that speaks to you and when you wear it, you feel stronger and more hopeful. Made with a lot of love & care, her pieces are made for everyone & anyone. For the inner warrior, inside us all.
